Program -- Grassland Birding in Colorado and Saskatchewan – A Birder’s Retirement Gift to Himself

After deciding to retire in late 2017 from a 31-year career in banking, Tim Colborn knew that he wanted to do more birding travel.  Visiting former colleagues in Colorado and a childhood friend in Saskatchewan helped shape a 2018 cross-country birding trip that would primarily focus on grassland sites and birds.  Tim will share photos and his fond memories of hopping in his car and driving west to the birds!

Tim is a Life member and past Vice President of the Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club.  He developed a love for the outdoors while spending his summers as a boy in the Eastern Townships of Quebec hiking, swimming and fishing.  A quiet encounter with a Great Blue Heron sparked his interest in birds and birding.  In the proceeding 30+ years, he has birded in more than 40 states around the country as well as in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ireland and Spain.  Much of Tim’s birding has centered in New England and the Midwest where he has led field trips, participated in Breeding Bird Surveys and Christmas Counts, and given presentations to bird clubs.  Tim has served on the Board of the Ohio Ornithological Society as Northeast Regional Director for from 2016 through 2018 and is the current President since 2019.  He also served as a Board member for the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society in 2017 and 2018.
